What to expect?

Chanted prayers, or "pujas" are a unique offering. All of these sessions are free of charge and are unguided. At the start of the session, an audio track will play and you can follow along in the prayer booklets which are available when you enter the main meditation room.


"In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful."
VENERABLE GESHE KELSANG GYATSO
